I'm surprised about the suggestion that bows be set to have the arrow in the same plane as the string and limbs. Most are offset left for a righty. That does simplify things.

I set my conventional bows offset left, but SR's are in the same plane. I aways thought this was because of the stiff tips on the SR.

A lot of the suggestions are problematic for people not shooting a sight. I've tried putting a sight on, but it seems that I can shoot a better gap than a sight. I'd like to see a solution for that.

Richard Cockrill's (SP) 'Tuning the modern recurve is a little more detailed than that. But still a very good read.

In my opinion the average archer and maybe above that should at least start tuning with impacts. Paper is good for fine tuning and verifiction.

Thanks Dan, I needed the refresher.

Yea, tuning details for Olympic type bow. Plunger and sight.
Some of the thought did carryover to barebow in my opinion. I have move my center, BH and tiller, if the bow has that adjustment to where it shoots best.

Just out of interest. in which of the three cardinal planes do you think the string and limbs reside and operate
